Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has signed a new four-year contract with the Premier League club.
The deal will keep the Ivory Coast international at the Etihad Stadium until 2017.
“This is where I want to be,” the 29-year-old told the club website.
“I will never forget how I have been treated here by the fans, the club and the owners and nothing would give me greater pleasure than to finish my career as a Manchester City player.”
Toure joined City from Barcelona for a reported Â£24m in 2010, having helped the Spanish giants win the Champions League title a year earlier.
The box-to-box midfielder has since been an integral member of Roberto Mancini‘s side, scoring theÂ winning goal in the 2011 FA Cup finalÂ and aÂ crucial double against Newcastle UnitedÂ last May to keep the eventual Premier League champions in the title hunt. read more
